Vehicle Overview

The GMC Canyon is almost identical to the Chevrolet Colorado, sharing the same platform but adding some style and trim differences that appeal to those who want a little more flash in their midsize pickup truck.

Available in Work Truck, SLE, SLT and Z71 off-road models, as well as a variety of cab styles, there's a Canyon to fit just about every need. While the Canyon is smaller than its Sierra full-size siblings, it can still seat up to six people in certain configurations. Its cargo capacity is impressive, with a 6-foot-1-inch bed on regular- and extended-cab models and a 5-foot-1-inch bed on crew-cab trucks.
